Steak is a beautiful thing, but dress it up a little with a delectable sauce and you’ve got yourself a terrific meal.
The red wine and mushrooms one
Are you ever feeling a little low and in need of real
comfort food? The kind that makes your toes curl with happiness? That leaves you with a dreamy, giddy smile all over your face? Then this, is that.
It’s a little elegant, and yet not overly polished or serious and you’ll have
no qualms about scoffing the spoils as fast as you can get fork to mouth.
might even say that steak has never had better friends than these mushrooms
(who obligingly sponge up all of the beautiful garlic and wine reduction) and creamy parsnip purée. The result? Heroic.
The zingy Asian one
This is one of my favorite go-to dinners when we’re feeling like
steak, but without all the extra admin (or calories) of any accompaniments
other than beautiful fresh salsa and spicy Asian-style dressing.
And I suppose
if we were being particular, this is kind of Asian-Mexican fusion with the
avocado and tomato salsa on the side, but hey, who’s counting?
The classic French one
I think of this un-fussy tarragon Hollandaise sauce as the
antithesis to it’s sometimes pedantic cousin, monsieur le Béarnaise.
Especially when you make it with this (almost) idiot-proof step-by-step recipe.
Served with crunchy grilled asparagus, this is one way of eating steak that is
sure to add a little French class to any meal… so, bon appetit people.
